Ball's is all I have to say:


Completely missed the bumper structure:


Comments:
So far, the mods are mild, but useful. It is a daily driver, commuter, but also used to tow the dirt bike, camp, for off-road adventures. The following items are also on my wish list: Exhaust, UpRev tune, beefier skids, bed line the roof.

Still a tight fit!

Nice xterra! Very clean looking, well done!
How do you like your lift? Debating whether i should try and convince my parents to let me lift the X or not...
If i did, it'd end up looking something like yours hopefully!

sylvesterthex: I love the lift. I bought the Xterra used, and with the worn out stock Off Road suspension, it would bounce all over the place on the highway, bottom out over dips in the road, or pot holes, or speed bumps, etc, etc. Now it's planted on the road, corners flat, soaks up big hits, and can haul ass down rough roads with ease. As yours is a 2010, the "my suspension is worn out and dangerous" might be a tough sell, lol.

Hope so. I have been out sick for the past 2 days so haven't been much help.
I'm not sure if I am putting the jinx on us or not, but i kind of hope we get to test out the new winch! At the very least, a little practice would be good.

I'm looking forward to doing the "top of the world" trail next year, in it's entirety :-D You have an IMS on your's flyfish? What did you think of it? Wait, might taint my opinion. Let's wait until I get to try mine then we can compare notes.

Nice X! That is pretty much exactly what I want to do, OME LD lift and sliders, and it's great to see how mine will EVENTUALLY look :) How are you liking the lift? Any complaints so far?

Thanks! My only complaint about the OME lift is the harsh ride over rough roads when the temps get below 0F. Shouldn't be a problem for you in TX, lol. Discovered I had put too much air in my tires last time I aired up too, that didn't help the ride quality, oops.

More aggressive tread pattern, and larger tire. The biggest I could get the Authorities were 265-75-16's. Think I want to go to 33's. What I'd LIKE to do is pick up another set of rims for the 33" Duratracks, and run them as a weekend off roading/winter tire. Then trade my Authorities straight up for someone's lightly used stock BFG Rugged Trails in a 265-75-16 and run them as my daily driver/summer tire. Just gotta find a set of cheap wheels.

gwos, i think you could/would be better off just running the 33" duratrac tires full time. I don't see a need to change them out, other than to slow down the milage you put on them. you could just sell your authority's???

if you still want the rugged trails, i'm not sure if xterra_brit still has his?

Yea, I thought of that too. I've just been doing on average a 1000km a week, and that's going up to about 1200 in a couple weeks, and it's going to be like that until end of July or so, so a second set of street tires to "save" the duratracs and help with mileage won't hurt.

Mileage didn't change noticeably with the IMS. If it did, I couldn't tell, as it changes by as much as 2mpg depending on which way the wind is blowing during my commute and how fast I drive, but I'm averaging 17.2 (MPG us).
Fierari, the Authorities have about 30,000 km on them now, lots of tread depth left.
